On June 23, a group of young Thai soccer players were trapped in Tham Luang Cave in Norther Thailand after monsoon rains flooded and blocked the cave system’s entrance. After a gruelling 23-day ordeal, the young kids aged 11 to 16 were successfully rescued with the collective efforts of the Thail Navy SEAL and international cave diving experts.
